How to remove Category filter buttons for portfolio pages selectively

Hi, thanks for your great support.

I would like to selectively remove certain Category filter buttons for portfolio pages. The buttons I wish to display may vary from page to page. My main portfolio page is I am panning on creating new ones that will have different filtering requirements.

I would greatly appreciate your advice on the best way to achieve this.


Hi @bnorsa,

Thanks for reaching out.
You can select the portfolio categories of your choice to show on that specific page from the Portfolio Settings > Category Select options. You can select different categories on different portfolio pages too. The options will be shown only if the Layout Portfolio* template is selected in the Page Attribute > template.
Please find the screenshot describing the settings.

Hope it helps.

Thanks @tristup,

This has been my approach however it is not working as expected. I already have applied the recommended settings and selected a subset of the available categories. However the page shows filter buttons for all the available categories regardless of what is applied under “Category Select”.


Hi @tristup,

Some further info: I sent you my login credentials on the other support post. These are still valid.


Hello @bnorsa,

I checked your site dashboard, I went ahead and checked your given page. It seems that it working fine.

Before category deselect

After category selected for excluding.


Hope it helps

Thanks, this has helped me to narrow down the issue. I am attempting to eliminate the “Northern Beaches” filter button, which does not disappear when deselected (refer your screenshots). I have created a separate draft portfolio landing page called Northern Beaches (as a test) and this has the same X portfolio layout with only the “Northern Beaches” category selected. I suspect that X is picking that up from the draft and therefore deselecting the category on the main portfolio page does not remove the filter.

To be clear I’m seeking to have the Northern Beaches portfolio display images categorized Northern Beaches only but I don’t want a Northern Beaches filter button on the main portfolio page. I don’t understand how to do this.

I would greatly appreciate your advice.


Hello @bnorsa,

Are you trying to get rid of the filter button? Please disable filtering which is at the bottom of the Portfolio Settings.
